OpenAI is reportedly close to launching its own search engine at a critical time when Google Search is under fire for allegedly prioritizing its own services and content over those from smaller publishers. The planned announcement, expected on May 9, 2024, suggests significant strategic moves by OpenAI to position itself within the search engine market.

As this news landed on the internet, people started sharing their views and concerns related to it. Some said this is how Google’s monopoly will end.

Criticism is mounting against Google for its use of AI to scrape web content, which is said to bolster its own services at the expense of the creators. This controversy has sparked interest in alternative platforms that offer a fairer approach and could challenge Google’s control of the market.

“They were advertising for in-house events staff and events marketing back in January; they just hired an events manager last month,” said Jimmy Apples, hinting at a big deal event coming in the month of June, where OpenAI might release its next model — “whatever sam decides to call it.”

The introduction of AI-driven platforms like OpenAI could transform how content is distributed and discovered, potentially lessening the current reliance on Google.

In a recent podcast with Lex Fridman, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman acknowledged the potential of large language models (LLMs) in search: ‘The perfect marriage of LLMs and search hasn’t been achieved yet. I’d love to tackle that challenge, it would be exciting.'”

However, Altman highlighted OpenAI’s commitment to not merely copying Google Search. ‘I find the current model boring. The question shouldn’t be about building a ‘better’ Google Search. It’s about fundamentally improving information discovery, utilization, and synthesis,’ he explained.”

However, integrating AI into search engines raises concerns about content authenticity and the Ethical implications of AI-generated content. These new engines will need to address issues of authenticity and responsible AI use as they develop.

Some said ChatGPT’s new search engine will pose a great threat to Google and Perplexity AI.

Reactions from the community have been mixed, with some optimistic about the potential for innovation and competition, while others express concern over possible increased power concentration among tech giants.

While some seemed excited about this new launch.
